50 Days to NYC
Break day. One of the nicest days of the summer...except that since school is back in session, it feels more like fall. Didn't just sit on my butt, thought. I still ran out of my house early...ran to Starbucks to get a coffee and the paper and then right back into bed to drink my coffee and read my paper and eat my favorite breakfast in bed; which leads me to...
...my favorite breakfast in bed (or late-night snack. or book club noshes), fancy cheese on fresh warm french bread with honey and green apples. it is actually supposed to be pears but I find it hard to find a good pear; usually they are too grainy for me. I am not sure if you noticed, but in eating, one of the main reasons I hate foods is because of the texture: pears, grainy; pudding & yogurt & custard & the like, weird and gelatinous, okra & too soft boiled eggs, snot-like. I could go on and on. But I prefer to talk about what I do like: cheese. If you are just getting started and are ready to finally venture away from Kraft processed cheese sliced and Philly cream cheese, go for the following: Beemster for a cheddar-like cheese: it is a hard cheese with these tiny delicious crystals that takes like caramel; and Riopelle: like brie except more mellow, make sure you eat it a room temp.
